San Diego newborn photographer and Whimsy Crafts Company

I love my small business vendors. Ashlee Hayden Photography newborn, baby and maternity photography studio has partnered with some amazing local small businesses right here is Southern San Diego.

Becoming a business owner is not easy. It truly takes blood, sweat, and tears to make your dreams come true. Being a mom of four, and having a dream to own a business of my own doing what I love has been difficult to say the least. But I would not change it for the world! Every struggle is rewarded with being just one step closer to that dream. I would not be where I am without the support of my family, determination, and great friends.

It is because of this struggle that I have decided to reach out to other local at home moms also working hard to make their dreams come true. In this search, I found an extremely talented person. A mother to one sassy little with one on the way. She is an extraordinary business owner who hand sews natural, organic cloth diapers and breast pads.

I am so pleased to announce that Whimsy Crafts Company and Ashlee Hayden Photography have partnered to bring you exclusive discounts. For more information on these discounts contact Heathir at Whimsy Crafts Company or Ashlee at Ashlee Hayden Photography.

These cute nursing pads were made exclusively for Ashlee Hayden Photography Newborn and Maternity studio. I am obsessed with this dragonfly print!


I’m just a regular mom who wants the best for my children but also likes to save money and is eco-minded. I also have an extremely heavy wetting toddler and after months of research, and now in my 3rd trimester with our second, I decided there was obviously nothing on the market that would suit our needs. Thus leading to my deciding to try my hand at sewing my own diapers with absorbency factors to meet the needs of our family. My husband was rather impressed with the turn out and encouraged me to market the diapers by saying “we can’t be the only family with struggling with absorbency as well as having the means to shell out a lot of money on something that MIGHT work”.

My products are CPSC and CPSIA compliant and consist very simply of an EcoPUL outer shell, lined with micro fleece, and decorative KAM Snaps. Each diaper comes with a 4 layer organic hemp insert for the pocket as well as a coordinating snap in soaker made with 2 layers of organic hemp sandwiched between 2 layers of micro fleece. I make newborn sized diapers that will fit a baby from birth until about 10lbs, One Size diapers that will fit from about 10lbs to potty training and nursing pads for mom to match. They can be purchased individually or a set of all 3!

This adventure has been such an amazing one and quite the whirlwind! I am so happy that I am able to share my golden ticket for absorbency and am loving the feed back I am receiving from those who struggled through the same sleepless nights that have now been remedied. I love to create. It keeps me sane. I take pride in my work and love the gratification I get from finishing something I am proud of and then having it come full circle in making someone else just as happy.”
